Mt Maroon via Cotswold Track  - This Mountain has it all; we warm up through open farmland, walk up a steep rocky section, scramble and haul ourselves up a short gorge beside a stunning cliff line, a short reprieve of flat walking in a shady gully and a final rock hop over huge boulders to a magnificent  360 deg views at the summit. Then when recovered we head back down again. If you have been training well with a view to maybe climbing Mt Barney in the future then this is a perfect mountain for you.  Plenty of good spots to take breaks and refuel so bring 2 litres of water and plenty of snacks. Call Tracy or Betty if interested.

Meet at Rathdowney time to be arranged.
